Mathematical model of the distribution of sizes of particles inside the SAG mill.
We use insights from mathematical biology to model the distribution of sizes of particles inside the SAG mill. In our view the problem is caused by small suspended particles which change the properties of the slurry, making it highly non-Newtonian. We justify our approach by evidence drawn from the data sets provided by Newcrest Mining Ltd.
